Katatonia have signed a new deal with Napalm Records. “Katatonia has been one of the most impactful metal acts, always progressing throughout their career”, says the label’s Thomas Caser. “Teaming up with such an iconic act is a dream of every music fan. We are beyond excited to work with the band and their team!”



Live music companies Broadwick Live and LWE have announced a series of shows to launch a new venue in London, The Beams at East London’s Royal Docks. “Musically, we will lean into the partnership, programming an eclectic series of day to night events over twelve consecutive Saturdays – October to December”, says Ajay Jayaram, Director Of Music at Broadwick Live. “We’ll be featuring top tier names and emerging talent, across various sounds, styles and genres within the broad sphere of house, techno, disco and everything that lies in between”.



Taylor Swift has released a brand new song for once. ‘Carolina’ is taken from the soundtrack of the upcoming movie adaptation of the book ‘Where The Crawdads Sing’. “About a year and half ago I wrote a song about an incredible story, the story of a girl who always lived on the outside, looking in”, says Swift on Instagram. “I wrote this one alone in the middle of the night and then Aaron Dessner and I meticulously worked on a sound that we felt would be authentic to the moment in time when this story takes place”.

Charlie Puth has released his collaboration with Jungkook of BTS, ‘Left And Right’.

YG has teamed up with 21 Savage, Tyga and BIA for new track ‘Run’, from his upcoming album ‘Pray For Me’.

A1 x J1 have released new single ‘Deal Or No Deal’, featuring Mabel and based on her song ‘Finders Keepers’. “Working with Mabel has been amazing”, says A1. “She’s been one of our dream collaborators since we started so it’s sick actually getting to work with her”.

Willow has released new single ‘Maybe It’s My Fault’. “It’s all too often in tender emotional states we try to blame our hurts on other people”, she says. “’Maybe It’s My Fault’ explores what it’s like to hold ourselves equally accountable for the emotional pain we feel while also allowing ourselves to be human and fully process all of our feelings without shame”.

Simon Goff and Katie Melua have released ‘Textures Of Melodies’, the latest single from their upcoming album ‘Aerial Objects’. That’s out on 15 Jul. “This song continues the idea around creating and writing, how to capture memories and how to capture the feelings of relationships, especially in their early stages”, says Melua. “Songs and memories obviously suit each other; the lyrics are also about my man and his positivity”.

Megadeth will release new album ‘The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead’ on 2 Sep. “For the first time in a long time, everything that we needed on this record is right in its place”, says frontman Dave Mustaine. “I can’t wait for the public to get hold of this!” Here’s new single ‘We’ll Be Back’.

The Snuts have announced that they will release new album ‘Burn The Empire’ on 7 Oct. Latest single ‘The Rodeo’ is out now. ”We want it to encourage the feeling of absolute pure, inclusive escapism through guitar music”, says vocalist Jack Cochrane.
